Okay, we admit it: The Avionics News Quiz was on vacation. But it’s back now, and it wasn’t alone! London’s Heathrow airport, one of the busiest in the world, consistently reports huge spikes in passenger traffic during the summer months (June through August), according to the U.K.’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
